Unexpectedly Intriguing!
January 5, 2010

Winter Fireplace One of the great things about taking a holiday from blogging is being able to catch up with other bloggers who you might not read as frequently as you might like while you're actively writing. Then being able to share what they're up to these days once you do get back. Here's some news from many of our old favorites!

Cheap, Healthy, Good's Kristen Swensson watched the Food Network for 19 hours straight, live-blogging the experience, and survived. Better yet, her running review gets better and better as it goes!

Michael Mandel has launched a blog focusing on Innovation and Growth. Here, on just the fourth post of the new blog, he's also identified a number of finalists for being the Economic Statistic of the Decade.

Despite the best planning and foresight possible to deal with a potential power outage due to the winter storms sweeping his corner of Virginia, David St. Lawrence still couldn't anticipate everything that might keep the lights out. The good news is that the house should have been pretty toasty!

We discovered that Darwin, of Darwin's Finance, clips coupons. Apparently, so do many other like-minded affluent people, in numbers that dwarf the stereotype of coupon-clipping being something that only poor people do.

Budgets Are Sexy's J. Money turned 30 on Boxing Day. And then did his first-ever interview with a Canadian radio station on the topic of, well, Boxing Day.

Bloodhoundblog's Greg Swann has big business plans for his new car. Or as he would say it "My car is not a real estate office. In 2010, my car is going to become a wi-fi-enabled mobile real property exchange and conference room." Meanwhile, in the year 3000....

Craig Harper told the tale of the monk and the business man on the train, before signing off from blogging until mid-January. Ironically, because of what he's doing, as opposed to being.

Mr. Tough Money Love meanwhile has no room for pleasantries when people share their poor money judgment stories.

Doug Short still creates and updates some of the best investing charts to be found anywhere on the web!

Before leaving on an extended blogging holiday of his own, Rowan Manahan revealed the origin of the job interview.

And speaking of the office, Wally Bock spells out just what your team members want and need from you as their boss.

Michael Wade finished reading Godfrey Blunden's "The Time of the Assassins," calling it "one of the best novels I have ever read." We'd put it on our reading list just based on that recommendation, but Amazon doesn't list it as being available, which makes Michael's reflections on why the best work of some enormously talented people might be passed over and lost especially relevant. As it happens, where Blunden's novel is concerned, that loss may be well worth rediscovering.
